Natalia Mashiach, 27, was reportedly hanging posters in Ramat Beit Shemesh, promoting a lottery business, when she was accosted, and then attacked by a group of local residents; her vehicle was also attacked, smashing the windows and puncturing the tyres, and her attackers then poured bleach on her and the vehicle.
Natalie, who was born and lives in Beit Shemesh, believed she was about to be set on fire by the attackers, and likens the experience to being lynched in an Arab village.
Natalie reported that over fifty people watched the events, which happened in broad daylight on a busy street - and not one intervened to save her.
I am horrified by this event - I feel deeply ashamed of the depraved and lowly status of our community.
Those who attack fellow Jews in the name of my religion, and in the name of piety; and those who stand idly by the blood of our brethren.
How low we have sunk.
